SXSW 2020

Retaining Culture in the Age of Remote Working


While it’s commonplace today, Cisco was a pioneer in remote working over a decade ago, and maintains that flexibility for its staff today - teams are spread all over the globe yet connect and work together successfully through collaboration technology. It’s also something that a younger workforce has come to expect and impacts their decision on where to work. While this has been great for Cisco for a number of important reasons, such as access to a global talent base, attracting and retaining talent, improving staff productivity and reducing facility overheads, it has an obvious impact on the ability to create and maintain a company culture. How do you keep a positive and consistent culture across different teams, located in different countries at a scale of such a large organization?
